If Él Yoshida loves flowers, wine and motorcycles, he also brings a sweet breeze of surf folk music to the beaches of Victoria, BC. Yes, Él Yoshida is the latest solo project of Clayton, member of Girlfriend, who associates powerful song writing with love pop music and beach dream melodies.
Surely one of Third Outing's greatest introductions? Él Yoshida's music sounds like a sweet caressing touch; soft and reassuring. Almost feeling like a journey on a beach back in BC, with Marie and our beloved, this journey portrays Él Yoshida singing his own vision of felicity. Far from a lousy ballad, Él Yoshida takes us to a sweet pepper land where poetry is as timid as bewitching. With a beach sounds, blessed by an authentic charm, he offers the world of Is She Were and Sweet Marie, his first two singles. Él Yoshida is now working on Salina’s Moonrise, an upcoming album with 6 hot new tracks.
If She Were is a song very much inspired by Don't Worry Baby by The Beach Boys. It's a break-up ballad familiar to anybody who has been in and out of love. In this tender ballad, Él Yoshida flirts with The Beach Boys’ surf music without ever falling into a bad cover. He gives a refreshing taste of hope with If She Were, and brings back to life the sweet memory of our ghostly loves from the past. Sweet Marie is Él Yoshida’s own contemporary summer tale. His voice finds the song, becomes a part of it, and then the emotion becomes the song. Marie is certainly one of Clayton’s love ghosts, and it’s quite fascinating at the end, where Él Yoshida’s Marie becomes our own sweet Marie(s).
